Rainsville renews ground maintenance contract in special called meeting

By Tyler Pruett, Managing Editor


RAINSVILLE, Ala. The Rainsville City Council met for a special called meeting on Wednesday night to discuss a ground maintenance contract that had to be renewed before the end of the year.

In a meeting lasting only two and a half minutes, the council voted to extend the contract with no changes.

Back in April, the Rainsville City Council and Mayor Nick Jones agreed on measures to both cut operating costs and generate additional revenue for the city.

Jones and members of the city council agreed in a previous meeting that it made good budgetary sense to downsize the street department by finding a private company to cut the grass on city property. Previously, this responsibility fell to Rainsville’s street department.

Due to resignations and retirement within the department, city government was able to take this action without layoffs.

The council began taking bids and accepted the low bid from Wade Bobo Lawn Service. Upon accepting the bid, the city would be charged $1280.00 per clipping to mow all city property.
